Bridge

Location

Description

The new Wittpenn Bridge, a $480 million replacement vertical-lift bridge, will be the state’s first orthotropic bridge deck, a lightweight structural steel deck plate featuring longitudinal ribs and transverse floor beams under a wearing-surface covered steel plate. The reduced need for concrete in this orthotropic design increases structural efficiency and service life. The bridge carries Route 7 over the Hackensack River, connecting Kearny and Jersey City. Full completion of the bridge is scheduled for the 1st quarter of 2022.

Scope

AEIS’ inspection and testing team is applying welding and non-destructive testing (NDT) expertise on this project. Our inspection team anticipated non-conformances in project materials and provided technical counsel in daily coordination with project teams. AEIS’ in-house, state-of-the-art engineering materials laboratory is being utilized on this project to determine quality and service-life outcomes for project materials. Our dynamic, multidisciplinary team continues to enhance project-owner confidence to ensure a timely, cost-effective project completion.
